Legal Seminar 2014 – Enforcement of equality and anti-discrimination law

On 28 November 2014 the seventh annual legal seminar of the European Network of Legal Experts in the Non-discrimination Field was organised in cooperation with the European Network of Legal Experts in the field of Gender Equality (managed by the Faculty of Law at Utrecht University). The seminar attracted 141 participants, including representatives of the European Commission, of EU Member States governments, of Equality Bodies and of EU-umbrella organisations. The seminar also brought together a number of high level academics from across the European Union.

See the seminar page for the presentations held during the seminar.

Introduction

To effectively promote equality and tackle discrimination in the EU it is important to understand the effects of the EU's equal treatment and non-discrimination legislation. Consequently, information on the transposition of EU gender equality and non-discrimination law into national law as well as the analysis of the impact of EU law  in practice - including any related case law – is needed.

The European Commission therefore set up in the past a network of legal experts in gender equality and a network on non-discrimination to support its work by providing independent information and advice on relevant developments in the Member States. The two networks were merged in December 2014 and are now jointly  managed by Human European Consultancy, the Migration Policy Group (MPG) and Utrecht University (UU) on behalf of the European Commission.

A primary task of the European network of legal experts in gender equality and non-discrimination is to provide reliable, expert information to enable the Commission to fulfil their role as guardian of the Treaties. The disclosure and gathering of information on gender equality and non-discrimination legislation, case law and developments at national level, that is often not easily accessible due to the specificities of national legal systems, language barriers and difficulties in finding relevant information, is therefore one of the key goals of the new network.

The dissemination of general information about the acquis (communautaire and national), the latest developments at the EU level and in the countries involved in the network, remains a vital issue both for the further implementation of gender equality and non-discrimination law and its further development. Only upon the basis of the disclosure of gender equality and non-discrimination problems persisting in the Member States and other countries involved in the network, will it be possible to develop sound policies and legal rules for remedying these.

On this website the network publishes information on developments in gender equality and non-discrimination law at Member State and at European level. The relevant information can be accessed from the law pages (European legislation, national legislation and selected case law) and the country pages. An advanced search menu gives the option to select by country, discrimination ground, field of application or a combination of these criteria.
